Relaunching Your Career: Tools & Strategies for Women Returning to the Workforce
Many Utah women take career breaks for various reasons, including raising children, assisting with elder care, and managing other responsibilities. Eventually, many women want to relaunch their careers. Yet, relaunching is intimidating for so many women. Often, we feel that we are not prepared for professional work after being at home and outdated in terms of skills, competencies, and professional networks. This engaging panel of experts and launchers will provide experiences, insights, tools, tips, and strategies for women returning to the workforce—whether you are thinking about it or already have a “job” but want a “career.” 
Conflict Management for Women: Skills, Strategies, and Solutions

Is what you are doing in conflict working for you? Clair and Carlee have spent the last five years gathering research, testing ideas, and training learners on what really works for managing conflict. From this work, they have developed a framework that creates a new mindset and language for approaching conflict.
This new mindset can transform how relationships, businesses, and communities prosper and thrive when there is resistance, discord, or clashing values. Join us for a workshop designed for women to learn specific skill sets, strategies, and processes that help find flow and peace in conflict.

Perspectives on Women’s Leadership from Prominent Utah Women of Faith

Utah is home to many prominent women leaders within a variety of faith traditions. This Forum will bring together four of these individuals to discuss their perspectives on women’s leadership and why, where, and how women today are needed to influence, impact, and lead in all settings. They will also discuss how girls, young women, and women can prepare now to become leaders themselves. Dr. Susan R. Madsen will moderate this engaging panel of community leaders. Come prepared to ask questions and to listen and learn from these influential women! This event is open to all girls/women and those who influence them (this includes men too).
